A bit earlier in Paris, at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, American carmaker Ford revealed a facelift version of their new Ford Fiesta, a model that is scheduled to go on sale at the beginning of next year for the North American market. Apparently the new model will receive power from a 1.0-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder gasoline engine. We head different rumors about it and it is now finally here. The European market received the 3-cylinder EcoBoost unit offered in two states of tune capable of generating 99 horsepower and 123 horsepower. The North Americans will receive the most powerful version capable of generating a maximum torque of 148 lb. ft. just to make a better idea, the 2013 Ford Fiesta before the facelift program received power from a 1.6-liter naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine capable of generating 120 horsepower and 112 lb. ft. of torque.
Joe Makaj, Ford vice president of Power train Engineering believes that customers will be pleasantly surprised at what the new EcoBoost engine can do. He also said that most customers will not even think about the number of cylinders under the hood while at the wheels of the new Ford Fiesta 1.0-liter EcoBoost. Why? The model is capable of offering very smooth and quiet idle, a sporty sound at high revs while accelerating. The best thing about it is the fuel economy that comes with it. Unfortunately there are no performance or economy figures available for the North American model.
We do have information on the 2014 Fiesta developed for the Europeans. The 1.0-liter engine is capable of developing 123 horsepower which are being sent to the wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. This enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.4 seconds and to reach a top speed of 196 km/h. It offers a fuel consumption of 4.3 liters per 100 km. the carmaker will reveal more details during the Los Angeles Motor Show, in a couple of weeks.
